After I break in my new M1A Rifle, I plan to expand my collection of .45 ACPs with a 1911-A1 Micro Compact by Springfield. Needless to say, this light and compact weapon is the ultimate gun for those with concealed carry permits. The fact that it comes direct from the factory with Novak night sights is also a real plus. If you are stranded by the side of the road with this gun in your pocket no one will know you have it until it’s too late. The combination of the night sights and the .45 ACP power will be too much for almost any predator.
Make absolutely certain you purchase this gun with the optional light rail (XML min-light included) for an extra $66. This is the kind of option that will likely come under fire if the Democrats take over.
Finally, I want to top off this round of new additions by adding a new 1911 Lightweight Operator in .45 ACP. The gun - in addition to being absolutely gorgeous – is equipped with a light rail, which will allow you to use your XML mini-light on more than one firearm. The five-inch barrel will make the Operator my most accurate .45 ACP and should replace the XD as the home defense weapon (and relegate the latter to full-time car duty). This gun, also equipped with factory Novak night sights, has an MSRP of $1253.
Getting started on this new spending spree may be the only positive thing about a potential Democratic Congressional takeover. For those who noticed, I’ve still got a budget of over $500 after adding these three news gems. The balance of course, will have to go towards a new gun safe. The Adams office is getting a little cluttered these days.
